Accra Aca ’99 Group grateful to Gyan

Accra AcaThe 1999 Year Group Of Accra Academy (Bleoo ’99), led by Mr Joseph Nkoo, has expressed gratitude to captain Of the Black stars, Asamoah Gyan, for constructing an astro turf for the Academy.

Gyan, an old student of Accra Academy, handed over the pitch to the school last month to help promote and develop more talents for the nation as a whole.

According to Mr Nkoo, who is the national president Of the Sports Callers Association Of Ghana as well as chairman Of Hot Circle 2  – a supporters’ branch of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, “Gyan’s gesture is phenomenal and we can only ask God to bless him and his entire family.”

” Asamoah Gyan has demonstrated a deep love for the Academy and the nation and we are forever indebted to him,” he said.

Accra Academy is one of the few Senior High Schools that has nurtured young talents from athletics to football to feed our various national teams.

Talents like Owusu Afriyie (Bayie), Leo Myles Mills, Princeton Owusu Ansah, Lee Addy and many others are all products of Accra Academy.

Most of these players – including Gyan, went through the hands of Coach J.E Sarpong, their former Physical Education (P.E) instructor.

Accra Academy is also known to have produced world class journalists in the persons of Randy Abbey (Metro TV), Adamu Muftawu (Radio Gold), Joe Lartey (TV Africa) just to mention a few.

Whilst praying for God’s protection and guidance for Gyan, Mr, Nkoo also appealed to other players to imitate the gestures of the Black Stars highest scoring player.

“If Ghana football is to get about 10 per cent of players like Gyan doing this for their former schools, I’m sure almost all the Senior High Schools in Ghana would have been flooded with astro turfs and Ghana football would move a notch higher.”
